Chalk Art Festival (at Four Direction Festival)

chalk art workshop

Downtown Williams Lake has a chalk art dream!  

What if …

  • we were a hub for chalk artists?
  • we had a vibrant group of local and regional chalk artists to enliven our downtown streets with colour and whimsy?
  • our local chalk artists partner with downtown businesses to create new and wonderful ways to promote downtown shopping?
  • we could attract chalk artists from around the world to come to an annual Chalk Art Fest?

We have the climate!  We have the pavement!  Let’s get chalky!

We are hosting the first annual Chalk Art Festival in 2017 as part of the Four Direction Festival July 1st, 12pm – 9pm.  Each Chalk Art Festival participant will receive one box of 24 Reeves Soft Pastel chalk, and one 4’x4′ frame of street pavement… the rest is up to inspiration!  Chalk Art Fest registration is free, but deadline is June 20th 2017.

FREE CHALK ART WORKSHOPS:  To support and inspire our local and regional artists to give chalk art a try, we are offering two FREE chalk art workshops facilitated by local multi-media artists Miss White Spider.  Click here for info about the 2 FREE Chalk Art Workshops and registration info.
